Join Carrie Dils for an in-depth discussion in this video Action hooks and filters in WordPress, part of WordPress Themes: Customizing Themes with Genesis.
- [Tutor] In this movie,…I'd like to introduce you to the WordPress Plugin API.…Now you may be saying, woah woah woah Carrie,…we're talking about themes not plugins.…But I promise you this is relevant.…The Plugin API is made up of hooks…of which there are two types - Actions and Filters -…and these are what let us hook into WordPress.…These hooks give us the ability to write a bit of code…that communicates with WordPress.…Now what do I mean by that?…Well WordPress is code right?…When you log into your WordPress admin…there's some code that runs.…
If you publish a post, there's a bit more,…or even when someone leaves a comment…that there's more code that runs still.…So everything that happens in WordPress,…obviously there's code behind it to make it happen.…But hooks are present all throughout WordPress code…and these let us latch on to a particular process…that happens and run our code at the moment.…And this is really cool because it give us…a way to access what's happening in the code…and then layer in our own custom functionality.…
